Conversations on Wellness with Dr. Frank Lipman, New York Yankee- Mark Teixeira, and Dr. Gil Chimes


LOCATION: Urban Zen Center
711 Greenwich Street, New York City

Urban Zen Center welcomes NY Yankee Mark Teixeira with Sports Chiropractor and soft tissue consultant to the Yankees, Dr. Gil Chimes as they join Dr. Frank Lipman for the latest in his series, “Conversations on Wellness.” Part of the discussion will include how all movement, from walking to high-level sports to intense training and high stress lifestyles can increase your risk of musculo-skeletal injuries, forcing the body to react. How your body adapts is crucial as it can become detrimental when it places excessive stress on body parts that cannot tolerate the increased workload. These adaptations need to be identified and corrected, whether you are a professional sportsman, weekend warrior, or even if you only exercise occasionally in order to achieve optimal performance or just improved function. Functional Integrated Therapy (FIT) is an alternative and holistic approach, which corrects these adaptations and leads to improved stamina, function, focus and resilience to maximize wellness and performance.

Learn about this progressive approach to sports medicine as Drs. Lipman and Chimes unveil treatments that are on the forefront of improving athletic performance and optimal wellness and listen as Mark Teixeira shares how “non-traditional” treatments like these have transformed his level of athleticism in the game.
